Childhood Memories

Several lunch box forms are available through your
local craft or hobby store. If selecting a metal box, use a
strong adhesive such as 3-M® Super 77 Spray. (The
formula is intended for a broad range of surfaces and is
higher in tack than other aerosols.) Another option is to
print your design onto inkjet matte paper with
adhesive backing
. You can then apply it directly to the
box, or apply it to blank magnetic sheets, allowing you
to change the arrangement of your design.

If selecting a paper-mache form, you may want to paint
the surface first. Begin by priming the box with gesso.
(Two coats may be necessary.) Allow to dry completely
before covering with acrylic paint. Adhere image to
paper-mache box using spray adhesive. Paper-mache
boxes also work well as a surface for collage. The
surface may be covered with scrap pieces of gift wrap
or tissue paper. If working in a collage style, it is best to
select thin or lightweight papers that will wrap easily around sides and corners. To adhere papers,
choose a thin craft glue. Apply with a foam brush and press firmly in place.
